Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp narrowly won her Senate race against freshman US Representative Rick Berg in 2012, even as Romney won the state by double digits on the Presidential level.
Heitkamp is in hot water now. With polarization increasing in the Trump-era, Heitkamp is trailing US Representative Kevin Cramer in polling. Can Heitkamp push a unique message to appeal to the voters one more time? or will Cramer tie himself to Trump to win in a normally Republican state?
I had wished to publish this earlier but it crashed so I had to reconstruct the scenario basically from scratch. So far, playing as the Democrat here is REALLY hard. I mean REALLY. So give it a try.

Before she was a presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren was a firebrand progressive facing up against an incumbent Republican senator. In real life, Warren came on top with a relatively close victory. This election was indeed considered to be a tossup and this scenario could go either way.

In January 2017, President Donald Trump tapped Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to be the next United States Attorney General. Will the GOP hold on to his seat in this deeply Republican state, or will former District Attorney Doug Jones become the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in over 20 years?
Candidates include Democrat Doug Jones and Republicans Roy Moore, Luther Strange, and Mo Brooks.
I might add the GOP primary later if this generates enough interest. Let me know what you guys think!
